I'm sure this was put up already...

Oh boy, what a horrible hype-fest developer diary: " more than a movie and more than a game, an experience!" - well, from the previews and trailer/screens so far, the GAME certainly looks like a typical license game that might score around 7/10 tops.

Nothing about this game exites me at the moment. But i am looking foward seeing the film.

:( well hopefully they can pull some good stuff out from their brain and incorporate it into the game.

So far i only notice mediocre graphics. :( Hope to see something different.

I think the experience is completely in Cameron's head. I don't get it.

The environments look spectacular, but those alien character models... eewww! Amongst the worst I've seen this gen, actually.

Ooph at the pretentiousness. Is it anything more than a shooter?

It could be a good companion piece to Lost Planet, though.

Yeah, I'm struggling to see where they're innovating with this game. Even within Ubisoft itself, this game seems lackluster.

I hope they start showing us something more significant soon. It's less than 2 months from release.

What's up?

    crookedmind ... I can't even think of what they want. Maybe expecting CoH or AoE or even a Starcraft like game, but it's not even trying to be a strategy game like that. (2 Hours ago)
  • crookedmind
    crookedmind @rayy: I think so. If I hit on something later in the game that I haven't gotten to yet I'll let you know, but so far I don't see any control flaws. (2 Hours ago)

    crookedmind If you took the sword work and handling from Witcher and put it in Skyrim, you have the ultimate game in that genre. Mods made Skyrim in my opinion; vanilla was stunted outside of stealth backstabbery (2 Hours ago)

    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: Both games in my eyes had spotty combat. I played W3 for its story and life. As for Skyrim, the vanilla version of the game felt bland without the mods. (4 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX And I think the gameplay that is there is pretty janky and pretty shallow. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX I get that you think Skyrim is crap, but The Witcher 3 aint "a good version of Skyrim" because they have totally different goals. TW3 doesn't even attempt half the systems that Skyrim does. (5 Hours ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX @KORNdog: Nah, that's *really* not all there is to it. You're comparing a broken apple with a poorly designed orange. (5 Hours ago)
